Here are the only recorded registered trademarks containing "Ron Paul" (and by the way, they are all expired):
Serial Number Reg. Number Word Mark Check Status Live/Dead
1 85546867 RON PAUL GEORGE & BINGO TSDR DEAD
2 77184359 RON PAUL SPEAKS THE TRUTH. TSDR DEAD
3 77097970 RON PAUL TSDR DEAD
4 75065313 2106377 RON PAUL TSDR DEAD
Since RonPaul.com has been operating uncontested as a business for more than 12 years, logic should dictate that they own the name and have built a valuable business using it.
Ron's lawyers should come to an amicable arrangement with the RonPaul.com site owner. One option would be to ask the site owners to provide a link to an official Ron Paul owned site and Ron's site could pay a modest fee to the referring site for sales made on his site. I've seen this arrangement made before with great success.
Ron's people need to wise up and quit being tools.
